Star Wars: Diego Luna Avoids Addressing Whether His Rogue One Character Could Appear in Han Solo Movie

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a bonafied hit, with over $915 million in worldwide box office receipts and legions of fans still talking about their favorite moments with Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, K-2SO, Chirrut Îmwe, and some dude named Darth Vader, among the other characters. While it's impossible to make a sequel to the movie, since it runs directly up to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, amongst other more spoiler-filled reasons, the characters' pasts are ripe for exploring.

That means we could see them pop up in Star Wars Rebels, like Forest Whitaker's Saw Gerrera did last weekend, or in new novels and comics, or even in another Star Wars Story film. The as-yet-untitled Han Solo film for example, is also set in the time between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. While Han probably won't be involved with the Rebellion in any way (he didn't join up until he kind of fell into it in Star Wars after all), that doesn't mean he can't cross paths with some of them.

That's what MTV News's Josh Horowitz asked Diego Luna about at the Golden Globes red carpet. He asked Luna if Cassian Andor could conceivably appear in the Han Solo movie, and Luna began looking around and gesturing with an over-the-top shrug.

"Who knows? You never know!" he said with a grin. The actor laughed and said, "I don't have an answer for that," then commented on Horowitz's shoes. Watch the interview above from around 1:45.

Luna also said that the craziness of awards shows and press tours is "to thank the fans. They Really supported us," he said. "The supported the film, they went to the cinemas, they've been watching the film three, four times. The love you get through social media is so special. Today, success is those experiences, that connection. I'm blessed to be part of something so big."

As far as those edits and missing scenes from the trailers? "This is the best Rogue One, and the only one, now." Luna said definitively.

So could Cassian Andor show up in Han Solo? He certainly could, but Luna and likely anyone else involved with the film will stay quiet for now.
